My heart now really belongs to Tenor so I tought I would configure the EWI accordingly.

What do you guys do? Do you leave it transposed in Eb if your main is Alto (or bari;)) or Bb if it is Tenor (or sop;))?

I use C or Bb depending on how I originally learned the song. If I learned it on tenor (or if I am learning it intending to play it on tenor) then I switch to Bb. For nearly all of the things I learn specifically for the EWI I tend to just leave it in C. The guy who writes the charts for my usual wedding band just writes everything in C for me.
Hope that helps,

I leave mine set to Bb. I just hear more naturally with those fingerings after so many years of plating tenor.

Mine's set to Bb as well since we do a lot of playing out of fake books and playing mostly tenor the Bb book is the one I'm carrying around.

Bb works the best for me. Since I normally play sop and tenor, I have an exception of what the next note I plan to play sounds like. I think that's one of the things that bothers me about playing alto. My subconscious keeps telling me the horn is not playing the right note. Same goes for the WX7 in C.
